Not my favorite by any means but I'd take it over ANY Brent or Vince tune or Phil/Brent duet

if Brent had performed the tune deemed "too negative" by the band, I might not agree with you. Interesting little tidbit re Brent and Barlowe's work together:

i think just the fact that it was a stable of the 77 78 sound and it has such a great groove makes it respectable to any earnest head

not to sound like a jerk but ANY and EVERY tune Bob wrote became an every night staple until the next two songs he'd write. Well? Am I not right?

WRS>Let it Grow
Lazy Lightning>Supplication
Estimated
Samson
Stranger ( well not every night on this one )
Throwing Stones
etc

Just a couple of examples of tunes Bob played EVERY night during their respective era's. No need to even get started on the Cowboy songs. Don't get me wrong, I love Bob and I like all these tunes. Just calling it not only as I see it but how it was.

I guess I missed the focus on 78 but taking the time right now to check out the everytime played portion of Deadbase I see I was wrong ( slight sarcasm there ). Weir once went a whole five shows without doing it in 76, other than that two was the most shows in a row from that year without playing it. Nine was the most shows in 77 without one, the rest were averaging two. I already knew it had dwindled after that.

19/66 shows in 1977
19/82 shows in 1978
i wouldnt exactly call that an everynight staple
ya they did play it half the time in 76, one year, in which they played only 41 shows.

btw estimated prophet was played 89 times in 77-78, 51 times more then lazy lightning...

Ok I guess I shouldn't have included it with Estimated and WRS as the every night song. Seems like it was played more 76. You're the one who called the song a staple in the first place, not me.

i would agree with you if that was true, but its not. if you take the time to check out setlist.com you will see that lazy>supplication was played far from every night, especially in 78. and unlike feel like a stranger and some of those others you mentioned, lazy>supplication barely made it out of the early 80's and was FAR from a staple every night at that point.

AND what i meant by a staple of the 77-78 sound is the same way i feel about help on the way> slipnot, its peak was in 77-78.
